Motions ruled on in the Casey Anthony case-UPDATE 12/18/2009
Judge Strickland ruled on two more of the Defense’s motions.
“….No impermissible motives can be attributed to the state, and its decision to seek the death penalty will not be disturbed by this court…..The defendant’s Mtion to Preclude the Death Penalty is denied.”
Strickland will not stop future jailhouse visits between Anthony and her attorneys but he will require them to be reviewed by him before their release to the media to make sure they won’t jeopardize Casey’s rights to a fair trial.
This motion said the charges against Casey in the check fraud case created a double jeopardy meaning that they charged her more than once for the same crime. Jude Strickland begged to disagree and that motion was DENIED. All 13 counts of check fraud will be brought against Casey Anthony on January 25 UNLESS they work out a plea deal.
This was a request by the prosecution for a protective order for an interview involving EquuSearch volunteer Joe Jordan. This request was GRANTED. The recording shall not be used or disclosed until further notice from the court.
